The NAC’s Young Artists Program (YAP), founded by Pinchas Zukerman in 1999 and now in its 19th edition, offers outstanding private instruction and chamber music coaching with additional career-related sessions and mentoring as well as performance opportunities including public chamber music concerts, public masterclasses, closed works-in-progress sessions and recitals.

The Young Artists Program is made possible through the wonderful generosity of individual donors and corporations, the NAC’s National Youth and Education Trust and its Lead Partner CIBC. We would also like to thank Honorary Patron Sara Vered.

The Young Artists Program is grateful to the University of Ottawa, School of Music for its support in providing excellent facilities and services.
